Bicycle boulevard projects provide a low-speed environment on quiet, low-traffic streets where more people feel comfortable to ride.
- Slower traffic and less rat-running on residential streets
- Increase awareness of people riding bikes along the street
- Safer, more visible and more predictable riding position for cyclists
- Safer crossings of main roads that intersect the route
Belair - City Bikeway
The Belair-City Bikeway will connect the Frome Street Bikeway with Belair via Rugby Street and Porter Street. The project is a partnership between the State Government, Adelaide City Council and City of Unley. This bicycle boulevard will provide a safer and more comfortable alternative to travelling on busy Unley Road and Belair Road.
Current works include a signalised bicycle and pedestrian crossing at the Cross Road junction with Rugby Street, Kingswood. The $300,000 upgrade is funded by the State Government's Black Spot Program. Works are expected to be completed by the end of June 2016, weather permitting.
Norwood - Magill Bicycle Boulevard
The Norwood - Magill Bicycle Boulevard project is improving Beulah Road and Rundle Street
Improvements currently being investigated:
- Traffic calming and sharrows along Beulah Road, Norwood. City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters is undertaking consultaiton on the preferred option until April 1, 2016.
- Wayfinding signage along the route
- Extending bike lanes on Rundle Street from College Street to Fullarton Road.
Community consultation on extending the Rundle Street bike lanes was undertaken in August and September 2015. You can review the current concept plan here. DPTI is revising the proposal based on feedback received during the comment period.
Completed improvements include:
- A new median refuge to provide a safer crossing of Fullarton Road (installed as part of the Fullarton Road Upgrade project)
- A raised junction to slow traffic and address crashes at the intersection of Rundle Street / The Parade West (a Responsive Road Safety project)
- Traffic calming along sections of Beulah Road within the City of Burnside
- A new bicycle and pedestrian signal to provide a safer crossing of Portrush Road
- Safety improvements to slow motor vehicles at 6 roundabouts along Beulah Road
Prospect Bicycle Boulevard
The Prospect Bicycle Boulevard project is improving Braund Road, Fitzroy and linking streets through Prospect.
Community consultation was undertaken for the preferred option in August and September 2015 and for the concept design in November 2015.
The final design includes:
- A series of six raised intersections along Braund Road between Le Hunte Avenue and Marian Place. The raised plateaus will create a safer and more comfortable cycling environment by slowing motor vehicle speeds. They will also address the crash history at several locations.
- A median refuge to provide a safe bicycle and pedestrian crossing of Regency Road
- Sharrows and wayfinding signage along the route
The raised intersections are proposed to be installed in two phases. Funding is available for Phase 1 which includes works within the vicinity of Prospect Primary School. Council and DPTI are seeking federal funding for Phase 2.
Phase 1 construction, which includes raised intersections at Le Hunte Avenue, Gladstone Road and Olive Street, is anticipated to begin in mid 2016.
